‘The Goldbergs’ Episode Guide (May 3): ‘The Day After’ Freaks Barry Out

“The Day After The Day After” (05/03/17) – After TV movie “The Day After” airs, Barry takes matters into his own hands by attempting to convince Murray to build an underground bunker. When he says no, Barry tries one last attempt at getting Murray to change his mind.

Meanwhile, Erica and Adam give over-the-top Mother’s Day gifts before making important requests to Beverly, but it ultimately backfires, on “The Goldbergs,” WEDNESDAY, MAY 3 (8:00-8:30 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Tim Meadows as Mr. Glascott, Bryan Callen as Coach Mellor, Kenny Ridwan as Dave Kim, Sam Lerner as Geoff Schwartz, Matt Bush as Andy Cogan, Noah Munck as Naked Rob, Shayne Topp as Matt Bradley, Sean Marquette as Johnny Atkins, Rowan Blanchard, Jackie Radinsky as Sergei and Steve Berg as Mailman.

“The Day After The Day After” was written by Alex Barnow and directed by Jay Chandrasekhar.

The VCR-loving, mixtape-making, spandex-wearing Goldbergs are back! For geeky and movie obsessed youngest child Adam (Sean Giambrone), his wonder years were spent documenting the hilarious and awkward antics of his colorful family.

Mom Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is at her best when she’s meddling, matchmaking and bedazzling her way through life, while Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) parents from the comfort of his recliner in his underpants. Oldest sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) dreams of being a pop star if she can only overcome her secret love of all things uncool.

Then there’s middle child Barry (Troy Gentile) who’s just as in touch with his emotions as he is with his sick rap skills, which is how he landed Erica’s best friend and the hottest girl in school, Lainey (AJ Michalka), as his girlfriend. Rounding out the brood is beloved grandfather Al “Pops” Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who enjoys family time with his grandkids almost as much as his weekly massages.

This season finds the siblings fighting off huggies, snuggies and nubbies, as they navigate what it means to grow up as a Goldberg.
